Ethel Booba reveals she’s six months pregnant
MANILA, Philippines — Comedienne Ethel Booba turned emotional Friday in noontime variety show “It’s Showtime” as she announced being six months pregnant.
After winning the show’s segment “Tawag ng Tanghalan,” Ethel called for a double celebration when she shared the good news.
“Double celebration, double congratulations to me,” a teary Ethel said. “Ito na nga, six months na.”
Host of the show and comedian Vice Ganda embraced Ethel and gushed, “She’s six months pregnant!”
In a previous television interview, the comedienne admitted being happily in love with non-showbiz boyfriend Jessie Salazar.
When asked if she is ready to settle down with Salazar, Ethel said: “Oo, siya na talaga. Ready na nga ako e.” (It’s really him. I’m now ready.)
The couple has reportedly been together since 2017.
